Congratulating the Liberty North High School Marching Band on performing at the Inaugural Parade for President Barack Obama on January 21, 2013.

 

WHEREAS, The “Screamin’ Eagles” were the only marching band in Missouri to be selected to perform at the Inaugural Parade and joined 47 other bands and floats from throughout the United States; and

 

WHEREAS, Inaugural parades are a time-honored tradition following the president’s swearing in and began with the local militias that accompanied George Washington from his Virginia home to New York, where his inauguration was held in 1789; and

 

WHEREAS, over 3,000 online applications were submitted and reviewed by the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region with only 300 applicants being submitted to the Presidential Inaugural Committee for final selection; and

 

WHEREAS, the process included members of military bands reviewing video and audio files of performances to judge the skill of marching bands, musical acts and drill teams; and

 

WHEREAS, it is an incredible accomplishment and honor for the students, faculty and staff of the Liberty North High School; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby congratulate the Liberty North High School Marching Band on performing at the Inaugural Parade for President Barack Obama on January 21, 2013; and
